Construction Zone

Construction Zone

© 2012 Clive Grainger

Dig, climb, build (and tear down!) in Construction Zone! Ride a real Bobcat, operate the jackhammer and deploy a team of trucks on your own construction site. Construction Zone is a kid-sized world inspired by the building projects that surround us every day. Ramps, tunnels, and bridges give children the tools to imagine a city in transition. A low steel walk lets them balance on a “high beam”. The New Balance Foundation Climb provides a “bird’s eye view” of the exhibit below. And a wide variety of block and construction toys throughout the exhibit give grown-ups a chance to create, build and explore alongside their children.
